The subjects were involved 64 swimming athletes(M:44, F:20), they were already registrated as a athlete in korea swimming federation. Athletes with injury of past history were 37 persons, and the rest athletes had no any injuries. Clinical exercise professional who had been experienced for 15 years had tested their epidemiology, stress test. Also We confirmed the result of their radiological test. We analysed χ² test and frequency analysis. The significance was α=.05.
The shoulder was the most injury lesion in swimming athlete(p=.000). Also, Muscle was the most injury structure(p<.000). The Impingement in Shoulder injuries was much more than other injuries. But, There was no significantly change between male and female in swimming injuries. Distance swimmers have much more injuries than sprinter.
The results confirmed that swimmers have the most frequently pattern in shoulder injury by impingement. We knew that backstroke player had more injuries than the freestyle and distance swimmers had a more injuries than sprinter.
